I recently stumbled upon a musical treasure. I have not been grabbed by a band like this in many years. The xx has been molesting my ears for a solid week now, and I'm enjoying every minute of it. The xx is from London, England and is made up of 19 & 20 year olds, which means I should hate them, but they've disarmed me with their music. They have a somewhat simple sound, but at the same time they are very unique. The vocals of Oliver Sim & Romy Madley Croft and the beats of Jamie Smith are purely hypnotic. The self-titled album they released in 2009 was their first and only so far. I sure as hell hope there are more to come.

Below is the video for their song Islands. On top of it being such a great song, the video is fucking incredible. So kudos & thank you to the director, Saam Farahmand. After watching it the first time, I immediately watched it three more times. I hope you enjoy! If you don't, you suck! If you do, here are some more of their songs you should check out: Heart Skipped a Beat, Night Time, Crystalised, Shelter and Infinity.

Welcome back! I did check them out the other day, and agree that they're very good.
